100 99% The Tree of Life (2011) - May 22, 2011
"The story of life. Envisioned as a prayer, told through jaw-dropping poetry and imagery. Nothing like any piece of art you've ever seen - and arguably the most memorable movie of the decade."
35 19% A Beautiful Mind (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"How did this EVER win the Best Picture Oscar?! I mean, come on! It was up against the spectacular Moulin Rouge, the best part of the LOTR trilogy, the unforgettable drama of In The Bedroom and yet another great Altman ensemble piece, Gosford Park. Four splendid films - two of them masterful. But no, let's award the plain, sobby biopic by the dude from Happy Days and penned by the writer of Batman & Robin. This will forever be beyond me, AMPAS. "
95 97% Atonement (2007) - Oct 04, 2008
"Epic yet intimate, 'Atonement' is a both timeless and haunting dissection of the hardship of passion, the many faces of truth and the quest for redemption. Though technically flawless - in particular the stunning cinematography, score and costumes could all be viewed as separate pieces of first class art - the shiniest gem is the truly spectacular Saoirse Ronan providing the breakthrough of the decade."
70 67% Brave (2012) - Sep 01, 2012
"Liked the Obviously Lesbian Princess part better than the Grizzly Mom half which felt like a 2.0 version of 'Brother Bear'. Anyway, a decent Pixar pic is still way preferable to most animated features. "
60 47% Moneyball (2011) - Dec 19, 2011
"Sorkin's tightly written script never dissects the main premise in a way that baseball novices - like myself - fully comprehend what the heck Pitt's tense coach Beane is changing about baseball. It's something important about numbers and statistics, and it's wrapped up in intellectual nuances without the typical cliched pathos of sports movies - thanks! - but it never really got to me. Thus, no home run."
55 40% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) - Jul 08, 2011
"Finally. After ten years of foreplay the saga of Harry Potter reaches its cinematic climax - and it's pretty damn explosive. Part 2 is pure fights, chases and wizardry war - an avalanche of action. Sadly, the big row falls short compared to modern classic spectacles like Saving Private Ryan's Omaha Beach or The Two Towers' Helm's Deep, and - even worse - director Yates loses sight of his characters and with them the much praised heart and soul of the franchise. An epic letdown."
40 24% Les Misérables (2012) - Jan 12, 2013
"Deep respect for Hooper's guts and willingness to take risks but, sadly, his version of what in my opinion is the greatest of the great stage musicals feels like a strangely rushed and emotionally forced tv-series. The characters are blown up in your face spilling their hearts out before you even get to know them, and though the method of live singing brings an authentic feeling it also drains the melody from too many of the songs. Oh, and Hathaway? Crybaby of the year."
100 99% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) - Dec 15, 2010
"It's probably just me, but this is - in my eyes - Kubrick's most intriguing work. Far from 'perfection', but indeed a perfect example that sometimes the flawed gems leave the most distinctive impressions in the long run. I for one keep coming back to the labyrinthine mysteries, the haunting imagery and the raw yet insightful psychological take on dark sexuality. A more than worthy swan song for one of the brightest geniuses ever to shine over the world of cinema."
100 99% Babe (1995) - Oct 04, 2008
"If Hans Christian Andersen came back from the dead and decided to make a movie, if would probably look a lot like this. Pure-hearted joy and old-school fairytale charm has rarely - if ever - been captured more touching on celluloid than here. That'll do for a perfect score, pig. That'll do."
95 97% Oldboy (2003) - Oct 04, 2008
"A brutal, yet poetic epic that contains both the most ingenious action visuals since The Matrix and the most breathtaking thriller-plot since Se7en. Cuts your heart and soul wide open while makes your pulse skip several beats - truly one of the decade's gigants."
